Dr. Solomon studies the ecology of lakes and other aquatic ecosystems, and of the fish and other organisms that live in them. He is broadly interested in how these systems function, and how we can manage and conserve them. His group emphasizes a collaborative team-based approach using whole-ecosystem experiments, observational studies across space and time, and statistical and simulation modeling.
